Published August 22, 2023 We’ve been talking a lot about protein lately, but fiber is a pretty big deal too! Fiber is arguably as important as protein in a balanced diet — for different reasons. Fiber keeps things moving, helps you feel satiated, and even feeds the good bacteria in your gut. Fiber is also key for hormonal health as it supports motility which helps flush out excess hormones. We take a much deeper dive into this topic here. Beans are one of our favorite sources of fiber! This bean dip brought to us by Parker Sloan, the creator behind @therollingsloan, is to die for.
